Kona-based Mokulele Airlines today announced service between the islands of Lana’i and Maui, starting on April 15, 2012.

The airline, recently under new ownership, will provide one daily direct flight from Lana’i to Maui and two daily direct trips from Maui to Lana’i. The new flights have allowed for an additional morning flight from Lana’i (with a brief stop on Moloka’i) to Honolulu.

“I am elated that people on Lana’i will have over more opportunities to travel to visit their ohana on other islands,” said Senator J. Kalani English, chairman of the Hawai’i State Senate Committee on Transportation and Senator for Hana, East and Upcountry Maui, Moloka’i, Lana’i and Kaho’olawe.

“I appreciate Mokulele Airlines’ willingness to listen to their customers and provide fair and affordable travel options, especially in my district which is remote in nature – air travel is a lifeline.”

“We are happy to provide the only nonstop scheduled flights between Lana’i and the Valley Isle. Lana’i travelers can now fly to Maui to shop, visit their doctor, or spend the weekend with ‘ohana,” said Ron Hansen, the chief executive officer of Mokulele Airlines.
